After seeing an abundance of food “hacks” on TikTok, FaZe Clan’s Brian ‘Rug’ Awadis decided to try a few of them out for himself.
FaZe Rug is the organization’s biggest YouTuber, commanding a whopping 14 million subscribers, and he’s mostly done so just by creating entertaining videos that cover a variety of topics.
His upload on February 8 saw him testing all sorts of food hacks he learned from TikTok, and it’s pretty much a mixed bag of things that look like they’d be good combinations nobody would ever think of.
For example, Chick-fil-A fries covered in ranch, buffalo, and BBQ sauce sound like they’d actually be good, and Rug would agree with that sentiment. However, we can’t imagine too many people would ever think to squirt a banana pepper into ketchup, and then sprinkling a packet of salt and pepper on top of it. As it turns out, that ended up being delicious as well.
At one point, he orders a McDonald’s ice cream cone and tries to make a sandwich out of it with a pair of cookies, only to have it fail miserably and become incredibly messy. Their dessert isn’t exactly comparable to the type you’d use in a normal ice cream sandwich, so it’s not surprising to see this one not work out great.
All in all, it looks like most of the hacks actually managed to enhance the food in some way, even covering a pickle with crushed Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. He does explain that this one is alright, but it’s not as good as the others he tried earlier in the video.
In today’s day and age where anything could go viral, it’s hard to know what to trust online.
We’ve all seen some suspect looking advice become popular on social media before, so it’s fair to question what you see from time to time.
Luckily, this time we had FaZe Rug to count on to test out the viral hacks himself and let us know what’s good and what isn’t.
